The National Museum of Singapore's newest exhibition: Picturing the Pandemic: A Visual Record of COVID-19 in Singapore
Looking back, moving forward
It might not have been the first global pandemic Singapore has experienced, but a year of COVID-19 has undoubtedly made its mark as one of the most impactful crises. For all of us in this era, this episode will permanently be cemented in our memories. And here to document the grueling year that was 2020 — when COVID-19 was breaking out in its earlier days — The National Musuem of Singapore presents its first major exhibition in honour of it all — Picturing the Pandemic: A Visual Record of COVID-19.
This exhibition showcases a glimpse into fellow Singaporean's lives as they adapt to life living in a pandemic, as well as stills that encapsulate compassion and resilience of Singapore's diverse community. The exhibition tells stories of how Singaporeans came together to care for and help one another through this unforgettable, history-making crisis. With the rallied effort of filmmakers, photographers, and curators, the collection comprises of 272 photographs, a short film, and 16 artefacts to walk through. Perhaps, an important trip down memory lane (once the future has safely settled in) for the future generations to learn about.
